Who's The Work Jerk? We Want Your Story!

The workplace can be great place to work were everyone gets along with their co-workers and superiors. But it can also be a hotbed for disagreements, confrontations, and other outrageous occurrences. It can be a confrontation with a co-worker over who's food is who's, a manager who can't seem to manage their team and passes the blame, or even a company that is not meeting your expectations. It can be difficult to handle this properly, especially if the tension has been building for a while. Tempers are high and heads might not always be clear. Want to know if you're in the right? Tell us your story and we'll give you our feedback on your new segment of Careers On Tap called "Spot The Work Jerk."

Then, during the show, our hosts, J.T. O'Donnell and Sam Bennett, will read your story and decide who they think is the work jerk. It doesn't end there.
